"nightly news" begins now. >>> good evening. i'm lester holt in for brian tonight. the words and the signals couldn't be clearer. it is virtually certain tonight the united states will not let syria's alleged use of chemical weapons go unpunished. the president today said he has not made a final decision in the course of action, but the case for a u.s. military attack was spelled out in no uncertain terms by secretary of state john kerry. like a prosecutor making an impassioned closing argument to a jury, kerry today made a point-by-point assessment of the evidence against syria, and warning of the consequences should the world turn a blind eye. kerry offered new details of the chemical attacks and the assad government's involvement based on evidence he said was clear and compelling. he said any u.s. response would be limited in its scope, without american boots on the ground. and he revealed that more than 1400 p

in for piers tonight. we want to well ccome our cnn viewers tonight in the u.s. and around the world there is breaking news in the show down with syria. president obama making a case for a military strike possibly. he says there is clear proof the regime was behind the use of deadly chemical weapons. the president also says he has not yet made a final decision on his military options, but he certainly appears to be moving closer and closer to using force. >> in no event are we considering any kind of military action that would involve boots on the ground, that would involve a long-term campaign, but we are looking at the possibility of a limited, narrow act that would help make sure that not only syria but others around the world understand that the international community cares about maintaining this chemical weapons ban. >> we'll have the very latest developments this hour including graphic video of a new chemical attack. and is the president doing the right thing if he goes at it alone? will it mean for america if he does? i'll talk to the former chief of the united nations weapon
suggest an imminent u.s. military strike, but rather an update about his decisions on how to proceed in syria. he's been meeting all morning with his top national security advisers at the white house. all this came earlier in the day, the signals were clearly there, even yesterday, officials started arriving at the white house today to go in the situation room, including the vice president, the secretary of defense, chuck hagel, the secretary of state, john kerry. the national security adviser to the president. the top military commanders as well. they've been meeting in the white house. there you see general martin dempsey. the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff. there's a tense calm that has fallen across syria as a possible u.s. military strike looms. bill neily has been in the capital city of damascus. we expect in a few minutes to hear from the commander in chief, the president of the united states. i assume they're bracing for some sort of u.s. military strike, whether it happens in a few hours or days. >> yes, they really are. it's definitely tense here. i wouldn't say ther
a worldwide travel alert for all u.s. citizens. it is taking the extraordinary precaution of closing 21 embassies and consulates across the middle east and africa. what are you finding out? >> credible and serious, it goes beyond that. u.s. officials telling us this is more, more than the normal stream of chatter they get about potential attacks. they have been following a stream for months now in yemen. in the last few days it grew. it became more mature, in their words. more specificity. that has led to the state department taking the action of shutting down the embassies across the region. there is particular concern about the u.s. embassy in yemen through about next tuesday. concerns about all u.s. embassies across the region. we are coming to a series of holy day as the islamic month of ramadan ends. they believe tensions will be rising. there is some difference of opinion within the u.s. intelligence community how much of this is just about yemen and how much is about the region as a whole, but no difference that it is very serious. >> the 3rd and 6th of august. those are critical
for us tonight. anderson cooper starts right now. >>> good evening, everyone. we begin with breaking news. action tonight by great britain slamming the brakes on any immediate military action on syria unless president obama wants to go at it alone, which the white house is signaling he might. parliament in england weighing a resolution that would have okayed the use of force. weighing it and finding it wasn't enough. here is the key moment as the measure failed loudly in the house of comments. >> mr. mcneal, you're like an exploded volcano erupted, calm yourself man. the ayes to the right, 272. the noes to the left, 285. so the noes have it. the noes have it. >> moments after the vote, prime minister david cameron assured members he would not exercise what is known as the royal prerogative to go to war without parliamentary approval. >> i strongly believe in the need for a tough response to the use of chemical weapons, but i also believe in respecting the will of this house of commons. it is very clear tonight while the house has not passed a motion, it is clear to me the british parliame
but not without controversies, privacy to name just one. thank you for being with us. it's been great to have you. "around the world" starts now with richard quest and suzanne malveaux. >>> the u.s. is quote, ready to go if president obama orders attacks on syria. that's according to chuck hagel. we'll look at the military options straight ahead. >>> political scandal in brazil forces the minister to resign. we'll tell you why it's latin america's version of edward snowden. >>> would you pay extra to make sure no kids sit next to you on plane. another airline giving you that option. i'm suzanne malveaux. >> i'm richard quest. >> the u.s. military is waiting for the go ahead from the president. it could happen at any moment. what we're not seeing today is inspections of the areas where hundreds of syrians were allegedly gassed to death. u.n. experts were prepared to visit second neighborhood. >> that was until the u.s. chief was seen leaving their hotel in damascus earlier today. they were not wearing their protective gear and were not joined by other members of the team. syria's government cancel
action against syria. what a difference a few days can make. less than a week ago the president told us chemical weapons uses aa question mark. now vice president biden saying there's no doubt chemical weapons were used and defense secretary chuck hagel says u.s. forces in the region are ready to go with armed u.s. warships already in the region. iran warning of a disaster if the u.s. intervenes in syria. we're covering all the angles of the story including the only western network reporter on the ground inside syria. let's begin with chris lawrence at the pentagon. chris, what's the latest in. >> reporter: military officials say once they get the order they could be ready to go within hours but while obama administration officials continue to verbally hammer bashar al assad we're still waiting to get the hard evidence that he's responsible. the latest warning to syria comes directly from the white house. >> those who use chemical weapons against defenseless men, women and children, should and must be held accountable. >> reporter: another sign to expect action, u.s. officials all but t
was gaining momentum, there are now new calls for caution. dozens of u.s. lawmakers want president obama to seek formal authorization from congress before an attack. congressional leaders will be briefed by the administration during the next hour. britain's prime minister is facing parliamentary resistance to a strike in an emergency session of the house of commons. they're meeting right now. and france wants to wait until u.n. inspectors finish their job. let's begin our coverage with our senior white house correspondent jim acosta. jim, have things over there hit a snag? >> wolf, you will not hear that publicly from white house officials who say they remain on what they call a compressed time frame for delivering a response to syria and they say intelligence assessment backing up that action will be delivered to the public as soon as today. in the face of more questions from congress and key u.s. allies, the obama administration says it's determined to send what it calls an unambiguous signal, not just to syrian leader bashar al assad but to the world. >> it's also important for our to
moments from now secretary of state john kerry will give a statement on the u.s. response to the syrian crisis. now, this comes as the white house moves closer towards military action against the syrian government, reportedly, in wake of last week's apparent chemical attack that took the lives of an estimated 355 people and injured thousands more. the question remains what might the intervention look like. u.n. officials came under sniper fire today in damascus as they set out to inspect the site of the alleged attack. now, the investigators carried out their mission despite the incoming fire collecting samples and interviewing several witnesses to the attacks as well as doctors who treated some of the victims. the white house, meanwhile, has been weighing its options and responding to the attack, including possible missile strikes. we go now to nbc's ayman mohyeldin reporting from cairo. as mentioned, those u.n. inspectors came under sniper fire, but they say they were able to collect evidence. when might we hear more on what they heard and what they were able to bring out of the area
? >> next time. >>> thanks to you at home for staying with us the next hour. okay. when japanese pilots turned to kamikaze attacks in world war ii it was meant to not be only effective in a direct sense, but also terrifying. the piloted aircraft used as a missile could obviously do great direct damage to whatever it hit. the psychological effect of being up against an enemy who would do that, a military that would expect its own men to deliberately kill themselves, was also just meant to terrorize, to make their enemies believe there was nothing they wouldn't do, no lengths they would not go to. when iran and iraq went to war with each other in 1980, a war that stretched on almost a full decade, the iranian side used masses of human beings to clear minefields, to walk out into mined areas, setting off the mines. they used swarms of humans often unarmed, untrained young boys to swarm over armed enemy positions. it was the human wave tactic. it was effective in direct terms by distracting and overwhelming the enemy and soaking up their munitions. it was effective psychologically, because
. >> 50 years later, extraordinary. of course, also extraordinary events ahead of us. unfortunately, perhaps, our nation called into conflict again in the coming days. we'll talk about syria in a minute. we look back at this speech and rank this speech probably as one of the greatest in american history. it's easy to forget 50 years later that a lot of people didn't want martin luther king to deliver this speech including jfk who tried to get him to call the civil rights march and speech off. he refused and kennedy was left with no option but to support this speech and the rest, as they say, is history. >> it is. president kennedy watched the speech being carried live on the three television networks. his remark after it was finished was he is damn good. one master of oratory understood it. i would argue that what dr. king said today 50 years ago was the most important piece of american oratory from the gettysburg address through our own time. it redefined what it meant to be an american. it carried forward what jefferson started and what lincoln ratified and what king was urging us
for a strike. u.s. secretary of state john kerry and president barack obama making the case to take action yesterday. we're covering every angle of the crisis in syria. barbara starr at the pentagon, jill dougherty at the white house, nick payton wash at the united nations in new york and fred pleitgen joining us from beirut, lebanon. let's begin at the pentagon. barbara, what moves has the military already made to get in place for any possible strikes? >> well, fred, by all accounts everything is in place. it's simply awaiting a decision from the president to execute an order to strike. there are still five u.s. navy warships in the eastern mediterranean, about 40 tomahawk cruise missiles on each of them. these are very precise weapons guided to their preplanned targets by satellite coordinates, 1,000-pound warheads on them, so very lethal. the target list, by all accounts, will include command and control centers, regime elements, weapons delivery systems areas, that sort of thing. anything they can get after that they can tie to potential chemical weapons attack or the regime itself and
convinced, not for the first time. remember, not for the first time bashar al-assad has used chemical weapons. >> there must be accountability. >> i believe we should use maximum -- have maximum use of cruise missiles. >> obama orders a report justifying a strike as assad tell s america, you will fail. >>> also, yosemite tinderbox. firefighters replace tourists as thousands race to save an american treasure. >> oh, my god. >> this morning, condition critical. new concerns for the largest trees on earth, california's beautiful sequoias. have they met their match? >>> plus, extreme heat shutting down schools in the midwest. temperatures soaring well above 100. >> it's just really hot, and it's just hard because we're sweating and stuff like that. >> classes cancelled, practice postponed. relief not coming at least until the weekend. you're live in the "cnn newsroom." >>> good morning, thank you so much for being with me. i'm carol costello. we begin in syria and late developments on the possibility of u.s. military strikes. just minutes ago, we learned that defense secretary chuck hagel
up those tests and whether they are in the government or in the u.s. country with other partners like bilaterals. we are focusing on that right now. another thing that is difficult to do is to know what will happen after we transition out of a place. we spent the last few years assuming the peacekeeping mission would leave and the un political mission would take over. there was a change of government there before the transition was due to happen and we found there will not be any security council role or political mission. un presence. we could have done a better job of doing contingency planning around the scenario that was going to follow from us on that is what we are working on at the moment, as well. the last thing i should mention to this audience is how do we at maintaining both the political and the financial support for a country we have in after we go. for peacekeepers, we bring the lens of the security council which tends to bring a lot of money with it. once the count -- once the country is off the council's agenda, it slips dramatically and there is less money and less s
in for brooke baldwin. the world waits as there is a strike on syria. president bashar al assad accused of using chemical warfare on his own people. the next questions, exactly how and when? today defense secretary chuck hagel told the bbc that the u.s. is ready to go. if president obama orders an attack on syria. >> well, as i said, and i think prime minister cameron has said, i think president oulan, our allies, partners, leaders all over the world have said, let's get the facts, let's get the intelligence and then a decision will be made on whether action should be taken, if action should be taken, what action on no action. >> but if they were to come, you're ready to go? >> we're ready to go like that. >> much of the speculation over syria's use of chemical weapons as secretary of state john kerry took the podium at the state department. kerry said he has little doubt that the man he himself sat down with for a meeting in 2009 is responsible for the, quote, indiscriminate slaughter of civilians. >> what we saw in syria last week should shock the conscience of the world. it defies any code of
of chemical wells attacks in syria, and there is no doubt who is responsible for this heinous use of chemical weapons in syria. the syrian regime. >> there is ample evidence of an atrocity on the ground. there is exclusive video from shortly after the attack and joins us by phone from damascus. >> what is the plan for continued strong language? >> reporter: i think they are hearing it. i was in with the information administration store who is a powerful figure and he spoke differently than i seen syrian officials speak in the past couple days. before that you would hear them say if attacked, syria would fight back. the syrian people would rise up. you still hear that rhetoric but a lot less bold, and it comes of course after statements like secretary of state kerry yesterday and the one from vice president biden today. right now what i'm hearing them say is the u.s. ought to give the u.n weapons inspectors on the ground here more time to do their work and wait for their assessment. of course, the u.s. has gone a step further and says the syrian government is starting to realize it's less a qu
>>> that's all for us tonight. anderson cooper starts right now. >>> good evening everyone. tonight with washington talking war, we'll talk about what military action against syria would actually mean to american interests, american lives and millions of syrians living and dying under a dictator. >> and part two of america's worst charity when it comes to how much money they raise for dying children, and how little they actually spend on them. we're keeping them honest. the people that say not vaccinating their children is a matter of faith, putting everyone at risk of childhood diseases that we sometimes forget can kill. dr. sanjay gupta weighs in. >>> we begin with syria. the drums of war growing louder but tough questions what kind of military action it might be. defense secretary hagel says american forces are in his words ready to go if ordered to strike. four navy stier destroyers have targets within range of missiles. a number of submarines believed to be in the mediterranean. the obama administration is promising to release new intelligence shortly. speaking to members of th
, a possibility, in which chemical weapons, they can have devastating effects, could be directed at us. and we want to make sure that that does not happen. >> if he can make the case, congressional lawmaker, say the president still needs their okay. in a letter signed by more than 100 lawmaker, they argued that, quote, engaging without prior congressional authorization wouldconstitution. 18 democrats added their signature, to that letter and got support today from a democratic senator, tim kaine. >> there are some circumstances where presidents to defend the nation or to avoid a catastrophe can act prior to getting congressional approval but getting congressional approval is, in my view, required. >> british lawmakers are pumping the brakes as well. the prime minister has agreed to wait for their findings before deciding on the next step. parliament will hold two votes before any military action is taken by the uk. the u.n. team is now on its third day of inspections in syria. they will do one more tomorrow and be out by saturday. they will report their findings as soon as they are out. obama
over 1,000 people including hundreds of children. this follows the horrific images that shocked us all. >> cnn has obtained new images the aftermath of another alleged chemical weapons attack in syria. and we want to warn you the video is very disturbing. seven people died and dozens were injured in the alleged attack on a school in northern syria. a doctor at a local hospital said, quote, it's like they used chemicals like napalm or something. many of the victims were covered in burns. cnn has not been able to independently confirm what happened there. cnn's senior white house correspondent jim acosta joins us now with all the latest from there. hi, jim. i know you've been working the story furiously. today the administration released its declassified intelligence assessment, its case for an attack, so what is the president's evidence? >> reporter: well, jessica, i can tell you from talking to a white house official, they feel pretty pleased about the way this intelligence assessment was received. just to walk through some of the evidence, the four-page document lays out the more than
for military action. we'll have more from john harwood in just a few minutes. >>> here in the u.s., dozens of wildfires burning this morning across the west. one of the most severe is raging out of control in the mountains of northern california. the latest reports say the giant wildfire has charred 15,000 acres within yosemite national park. a live report from scott cohn who is on the ground there in the next hour. joe. >>> let's check on the markets this morning around the world. talk about the u.s. first. kind of a healing week last week after a couple of rough ones. but not a lot of great action today. if you are hoping for a rebound in the averages, down about 18 points or so. as far as energy prices, we'll take a look at the oil boards right now. we've got not a whole lot happening. 106 or so. the dollar's been quiet recently as the euro's been around 1.33. there's the ten-year at 2.82. a lot of people going to watch obviously what happens there. a lot of the equity action on what happens. 2.82. we can take that a little bit more than when we were thinking about it. been there. kind
's going to last, you love this, two days. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. have a safe and happy labor day weekend. "all in with chris hayes" starts right now. >>> good evening from new york. i'm chris hayes. u.n. inspectors tonight are preparing to leave syria in anticipation of an imminent strike by forces of the united states. a strike which seems all but assured after the secretary of state john kerry came before the nation today with a stunningly aggressive case for military intervention in syria. he began what he called facts about the chemical weapons attack that took place near damascus last week. >> we know that for three days before the attack, the syrian regime's chemical weapons personnel were on the ground in the area making preparations. we know where the rockets were launched from and at what time. we know where they landed and when. the united states government now knows that at least 1,429 syrians were killed in this attack, including at least 426 children. we know that a senior regime official who knew about the attack confirmed that chemical weapons w
. you're a beautiful sight to behold, and at that time 50 years ago we heard dr. king inspire us with the "i have a dream" part of his speech, the part that was the call to action was the fierce urgency of now part of his speech. in that time dr. king says we refuse to take the tranquillity drug of gradualism. we must move forward, and forward we will. if it was fiercely then urgent, it certainly is now. 50 years ago there were only five african-american members of the house of representatives. there was no congressional black cauc caucus. today there are 43 members. we want more but there are 43. they're led by congresswoman marsha fudge who you heard from and they are the conscience of the congress. in that blauk caucus we have the privilege of serving with john lewis, some of us for over 25 years in the congress, and aren't we proud of that. i also want to mention that 50 years ago, though he was not a member of congress at the time that john conyers was one of three people invited to the white house to meet with president john f. kennedy following the civil rights march, the

"ac 360" starts now. >>> thanks very much. good evening everyone. we begin with breaking news. action tonight by great britain slamming the brakes on any immediate military action on syria unless president obama wants to go at it alone, which the white house is anything untiling it might. a resolution that would okay the use of force, weighing it and finds it wasn't enough. here is the key moment as the measure failed loudly in the house of comments. >> mr. kneel you're like an explod exploded volcano erupted, calm yourself man. the eyes to the right 272 the noes to the left, 285, so the noes have it. the noes have it. >> moments after the vote, prime minister david cameron assured members he would not exercise what is known as the royal prerogative to go to war without parliamentary approval. >> i strongly believe in the need for a tough response to the use of chemical weapons, but i also believe in respecting the will of this house of c

"early start" begins now. >>> chemical weapons attack the u.s. the syrian government slaughtered hundreds of its people. did u.n. inspectors find proof of the attack? we are live. >>> burning out of control, a wildfire in and around yosemite national park spreading. how fast the flames are moving in the up hill battle facing firefighters. >>> the man acquitted of murdering unarmed teenager, trayvon martin wants the state of florida to pay up. why he thinks it state owes him big bucks. >> good morning. welcome to "early start." i'm michaela pereira. >> it's nice to have you with us on this tuesday. >>> the world is asking what to do about last week's deadly chemical attack on the suburbs of damascus. the obama administration is making it clear they believe chemical weapons were used and blames the assad regime as u.n. inspectors continue to look into the attack and who may be behind it. fred is the only reporter in damascus. he joins us live this morning. what are inspectors planning to do today and what is the government saying? >> reporter: hi,
worried. it is all happing right now. jon: good morning to you, with us today, is arthel neville. in for jenna lee. arthel: we'll start with this, jon. a-team of u.n. inspectors coming under sniper fire in damascus. a spokesman saying it happened while they were on their way to inspect the site where hundreds of people were killed in a reported chemical attack last week. for days syria wouldn't let the team go near the site. the government finally agreeing to allow the inspectors to visit that starting today but a senior u.s. official dismissed the offer as too late to be credible saying crucial evidence could have already been destroyed. leland vittert is live in jerusalem with more. leland? >> reporter: arthel, we're told in the past couple of hours that u.n. team was able to safely make its way across the no-man's land from the government side to the syrian rebel side and that is where they're conducting that investigation six days after the attack the past couple of days while the syrian government was quote, thinking about whether to allow them into this specific area, we ha
things back today. is the u.s. attack on syria coming sooner, later, or not at all? the markets meanwhile are clearly rooting for no attack. any time kerry or president obama made hawkish comments stocks fell. when they were more dovish stocks rallied back. stocks finished on another down note. considering all we've been through this summer, the markets have been pretty resilient. meanwhile another conflict in washington gearing up. the fight over debt ceiling, government shutdown, sequester, taxes all that continues. meetings between the gang offing eight and white house negotiators broke down. all that and more coming up on "the kudlow report" beginning right now. >>> good evening, everyone i'm larry kudlow. this is the cut low report. you heard my interpretation of today's speeches. john kerry talked tough in a stroke and brilliant speech. president obama on the other hand seemed to walk it back. let's go cnbc john harwood. he's live in washington for us this evening. first of all, thank you, john and second of all, good evening. what can you tell us? >> reporter: i don't think preside
a senior regime official who knew about the attack confirmed chemical weapons were used by the regime. high confidence. this is common sense. this is evidence. these are facts. the question is what are we, we collectively, we in the world going to do about it. >> after ticking through the information made public in an intense report, kerr relative moved on to why a chemical weapons attack on the syrian people matters to the united states. >> 100 years ago in direct response to the utter horror and inhumanity of world war i that the civilized world agreed that chemical weapons should never be used again. it matters today that we are working as an international community to rid the world of the worst weapons. it matters to our security and the security of our allies. it matters because a lot of other countries whose policies challenge these international norms are watching. what we choose to do or not to matters in real ways to our own security. some cite the risk of doing things, but we need to ask what is the risk of doing nothing? >> secretary kerry speaking directly to the american people
. the reason the strength in the euro has been attributed to worries about the u.s. economy. please, that's just the press being too negative again. it's europe's strength. not u.s. weakness that's driving the currency. the turn in europe is happening so swiftly that u.s. companies just reported beginning to see the strength, only in the mid part of the quarter. that's right, they saw the strength only in mid quarter taking companies so by surprise, they're mostly in disbelief. mostly the gigantic auto companies like ford and gm. they didn't anticipate this turn around. the tech supermarket with business in europe will tell us the same thing when we speak to them later in the show. how much do i believe in this european turn? there are still plenty of skeptics out there, i like that, i am not one of them. my charitable trusts have been buying outsized position in vgk. trust has also bought a ton of ebay, which is the u.s. company this quarter that complained the loudest about european weakness. don't forget the europe's use for google and apple. i am a big believer that this is an importa
of all, tell us more about the victim. a lot of people just wondering, this poor guy who ends up getting caught in all of this. really horrific situation. >> it really was. he was 23 years old. he was from australia. he was in oklahoma going to school at east central university on a baseball scholarship. his teammates and also his coach say he was the kind of guy you wanted to be around. just a really good hearted person. >> what are their raages? is this something where they could be put to death, life in prison? it seems like the motive when talk about being bored seems extraordinary. >> the charge of felony murder in oklahoma carries a maximum sentence of death. in this case because the suspects are minors, the district attorney tells us that means they will not be eligible for the death penalty. >> thank you. >>> there are stunning developments in the hannah handerson kidnapping case. it only gets stranger. the family of james dimaggio who police say killed christina anderson and her son and kidnapped hannah is asking for a paternity test to see if dimaggio is the bilodge cam father
the admitted judd -- ahmadinejad presidency. the government made several overtures to the u.s., was discredited by reason of the fact that the u.s. ignored those over chores. -- overtures. it was replaced by hard-line president. the relationship deteriorated significantly. there is a statement that elections have consequences. iranian elections are not free and fair. the iranians are not offered many choices. they are offered meaningful choices. one can almost never predict the outcome. nobody predicted ahmadinejad's selection -- election, including the most influential elements of the establishment, who were quite surprised. the next election is shaping up to be a very interesting event, with various factions involved. there may be opportunities to change the nature of that relationship. it's probably not going to happen. it's certainly not going to happen unless we can successfully address the first reversing the iranian nuclear program to a point where they are more distant from gaining nuclear weapons capability, and can we have confidence that they will stay at that dista
